Learn what hosting providers really mean when they say ‘monthly traffic quotas’.
The monthly site traffic function is sometimes identified as information transfer or bandwidth as well, yet all of the abovementioned names apply to the same thing - what amount of info can be transferred to and from a cloud hosting account. The web site traffic can be produced in two ways, the more apparent one being website visits. If someone visits your site, their Internet browser requests and downloads the pages from the website hosting server then shows them on their end. The more website visitors you have, the more outbound traffic is generated from your hosting account. Considering that this feature includes the total traffic, not just the website visits, you should not forget that incoming traffic is measured as well. This means web site content and other files that you upload to the account through a file manager or an FTP application are counted towards the account allowance. The transfer is typically checked on a monthly basis and the counter resets on the first day of each month whatever your actual date of signup.
Monthly Traffic in Cloud Hosting
All of our Linux cloud hosting packages
were designed with the idea to take care of the website traffic made by any website that can exist in such an account. In case you currently have one or several small or medium-sized web sites, you won't be limited by the monthly traffic quota no matter what content you may have - plain text or perhaps many images, for instance. The stats in the hosting Control Panel will provide you with comprehensive info about the site traffic generated by every single site and the total amount for the account altogether. The amounts are updated live and show both the day-to-day and the monthly usage, so you will be aware of how much information is transferred to and from your web hosting account anytime. The first day of each month your counter is reset, but you will still be able to view the site traffic statistics for the past months, which will give you an idea how your web sites perform.
